Every time I play a game now my computer randomly starts lagging, the frame rate drops to almost nothing and it makes the game almost unplayable.. Very annoying.. It lasts for about 10-20 seconds and then goes back to normal, then does it again, and so on so forth. It didn't use to do this and I can't exactly remember when it started, I do know that there were no hardware changes though. It happens on every game and its completely random as to when it starts (not like at a cutscene or anything, I could be staring at a wall..) If anyone knows what this is that'd be great. I'm only assuming its a hardware problem too. So if it's not sorry for the mis-post..
